“I am simply a ‘book drunkard.’ Books have the same irresistible temptation for me that liquor has for its devotee. I cannot withstand them.”
— L.M. Montgomery
I was born and raised in a tropical country where drinking coconuts and eating fried bananas were the norm. I lived there for 16 years until my family which consists of my parents and two younger sisters decided to move to a country where two seasons became four.
In high school, writing and reading was not my thing. I would rather play sports than read some old book in the library or write a really bad essay. My love for reading started when my friends recommended me to read Twilight . Mind you, they were total Twi-hards. Four books later, I finally realized how reading broaden my imagination and my vocabulary. I started to understand words that my parents and class mates did not expect me to know. I became happy and my reading became an addiction. Not only did I gain new fictional friends but, also, I became smart! I am still not fond of essay writing no matter what. Now that I am in college, I am learning to balance my time between writing my novels to studying the mind of a criminal. How do I do it, you ask? Well, I will tell you once I figured it out myself.
My first novel, Out For Blood, was inspired by all the movies I’ve watched and all the books that I’ve read. My second book, My Innocent Broken Heart, was inspired by the experience I had during Grade 7. Both are currently in the process of writing and publishing, chapter by chapter, via Wattpad.
I am happy that I am finally doing what I feel I should have been doing a long time ago (even though writing and I are not best of friends). Now that I am finally writing my own, I hope every single reader will enjoy!
